Success Rebel Comparison: 1-AD vs. 1-Testosterone


Hey guys. What is popping?

This will be a comparison post of two 1-Andro products by Hi-Tech Pharma. This will be a quicker post just lay out the facts between the two products and talk about my experience.

Unfortunately, 1-AD and 1-Testosterone are banned anabolic compounds. Hi-Tech Pharma used some tricky marketing and named their 1-Andro products after the legendary steroids (great branding technique). 

Neither on of the products I am going to talk about actually contain those compounds.  

If you do not what 1-Andro is, check out the link to the article above. It contains everything you need to know about this compound. 

For the most part, it is one of the most powerful designer steroids (legal anabolic compounds) on the market. 

1-Andro converts to 1-Testosterone (powerful steroid) via 1-AD enzyme pathway. 

Anabolic activity is stimulated and you make great gains on this compounds. See the picture of me below while was on cycle. 

If you are reading this article then you probably already know the good gains you can make. They are dry (do not aromatize) and have great effect on the body. 

I have been getting a lot questions though about which 1-Andro product to take from Hi-Tech Pharma.

1-Testosterone or 1-AD?

Well this will depend on a couple factors that I will explain below. 

But it mainly comes down to experience with 1-Andro, susceptibility to estrogenic side effects, desired stacking and anabolic effects, and any health issues regarding the kidney or liver.

Either way, let's get into it. 

My Physique Right After My Cycle Of 1-Andro in Fall Of 2014. 

1-AD Quick Description And Benefits

1-AD contains approximately 75 mg of ester bound 1-Andro per capsule. That means you probably get 50mg of 1-Andro each capsule due to the ester. This low dosage makes this product very ideal for first time 1-Andro users. 

You can cycle this product from 4-8 weeks, along with a 4 week full post cycle therapy period. 

You can take up to 2 capsules per day (more advanced user can take up to 3 capsules) at about 8-10 hours apart with food and drink. 

2 capsules per day will make the bottle last days. Fine for a 4 week cycle for first time users. Followed by a 4 week full PCT.

The lower doses allow for this compound to be stacked with other androgenic anabolic compounds such as SARMs or other designer steroids

However I do not recommend this because this will cause your natural testosterone production to shutdown and your endocrine system will take a longer time to recover. 

This product already contains laxogenin which is great for strength gains, cardiovascular health, and joint support. 

I recommend you stack this compound with MK-677 (growth hormone secretagogue). This is a non androgenic compound and is a great standalone product. Great for maximizing gains on a bulk.

Side Effects

The side effects are typical of any anabolic hormone minus severe aromatization. 

You could potentially run into hair loss, prostate enlargement, cardiovascular issues, testicular shrinkage, acne or rash, heightened aggression, liver issues, kidney issues, etc. 

I highly recommend on cycle therapy to help deal with these issues. Arimacare Pro by Olympus Labs is the best on cycle therapy supplement on the market these days. 

Each serving contains a lot of pills but it contains all the ingredients you need to properly and effectively combat these side effects. 

1-Testosterone Quick Facts And Benefits

This product contains 110 mg of 1-Andro per serving. Over twice as much (when you do not count the ester) as 1-AD. 

Automatically, this product is better bang for your buck. 

However, the higher doses per capsule are meant for more advanced (experienced) users. 

1-Testosterone is not for first time users. 1-AD is the much safer product for beginners with 1-Andro. 

I recommend taking 2 capsules a day, 8-10 hours apart with food and drink. 

You can cycle this product for up to 8 weeks but 4-6 weeks is probably more ideal due to the strain it puts on the body. 

You will need a full PCT after you cycle. You natural testosterone production will most likely shutdown while on cycle. 

This is why I do not suggest you stack this product with another androgenic compound.

If you do, it will take your endocrine system even longer to recover and/or you could run into further short and long term health complications. 

I recommend you stack this product with regular muscle building supplements and non androgenic anabolic compounds (laxogenin and/or MK-677). 

The second ingredient is 6,7 Dihydroxybergamottin is a grape seed extract that helps you body better absorb 1-Andro.

Side Effects

The side effects are identical as those to 1-AD. My recommendations remain the same. Use Arimacare Pro to combat the side effects.

The side effects do subside after your cycle is over though. It will take a couple weeks for everything to get back to normal though.  

My Experience​

I used 1-AD by Hi-Tech Pharma. It was recommended to use this over 1-Testosterone by a trusted and experienced friend of mine. 

This is a few months following my Epi-Andro cycle. I wanted to try something stronger and 1-Andro was recommended to me. 

I did a good bit of research of the compound but should have done more. 

My results were specular and made the greatest amount of gains on this than any other compound I have ever taken.

My experience on cycle was dreadful. I felt lethargic all the time. This is a common side effect of the 1-Testosterone compound that 1-Andro converts into. 

It was so bad it effected my daily life and I shortened my cycle from 6 weeks to 4 weeks. It was that bad. 

I was told months later that a way to combat the lethargy is to stack 1-Andro with Epi-Andro. This no scientific reason why this works. 

But it has worked for countless others in getting rid of that crappy feeling. 

If I were to use it again then that is what I would do. Otherwise, 1-Andro deliver results and great gains.


There you have it. 1-Testostosterone (high dosage) is better advanced users while 1-AD (lower dosage) is better for first time users. 

You will need a full post cycle therapy and on cycle therapy for each product.

These are both great products for 1-Andro. I have personal experience with 1-AD and really recommend it. 

That is all for now guys. Please read my guide to 1-Androsterone if you have not already.
